The new series amps that they are coming out with that are "slim" and smaller are called "nano amps" there bad ass. You can fit most in your glove box

That Alpine H.U. add on amp KTP-445 fits in the glove box with a fair bit of room left over.

Ordered a new box, sealed wasn't cutting it.

I'm waiting on a recone kit so bear with me on the ugly surround.

This replaced two 12" Polk MM1240DVC's, which replaced 2 Alpine 10" SWR-T10's, which replaced two 10" SD-2 10's. The single ported 10" has a much more complete sound.











It's not a perfectly tuned SQ enclosure. It is not purpose built for the SD-2, although it was the woofer mentioned when requesting the build since shallow mount is a must in the reg cab. It isn't perfect but it is orders of magnitude better than sealed.

The first part of my personal Christmas arrived today. Sub and speakers should be here tomorrow, amp and headunit the next day!

Not 100% sure that fitment will be perfect but I got it for so cheap on fleabay that I figure I won't be taking a big hurt if it doesn't fit right. I can always make a rubber spacer ring to give it more clearance.

I would but I seriously saved over 60% by buying online from wholesalers. Also I don't have a day off or enough of a day off to install it for another 5 days so it'll be here before that.

I think when these come out later this year i might get two of them to replace the SA-8 i have now.


Looks like they will be rated 300w rms. Two of these in a t-line encloure would be awesome i bet.

Alright guys: so now that I'm starting to get my sound system stuff, I have a question. I have manual door looks since my truck used to be a fleet truck. Any ideas on products to get door lock actuators and an alarm? I'm probably going to get a viper keyless entry/remote start system since best buy now price matches amazon. But how should I go about door lock actuators since kits don't come with them? I figure this may be a decent place to ask since its about keeping my stuff safe! Haha also, just got this:

I'm getting more and more excited haha

Putting the actuators in was easy. Only modification I made was I drilled a hole to attach the rods. Running the wires can be a B for a rookie. Invest in a retractable claw and maybe fish tape

When I say install I mean they'll sell them with the alarm.

Went to a local audio shop today that sells Sundown. Checked out the SA8. I want two of them now.... only problem is they onky have these tiny little sealed boxes that the sub sits out of so I'd be looking at ~$125 for a custom box from them. Plus the $180 per sub. I'm not down for that lol
